When used with Janus EMS phones featuring the phone line monitoring option, the LMA unit completes the warning system. To manage multiple phone lines, the LMA can be used in conjunction with Janus’ Line Monitoring Expansion (LMX) unit. Mounted in the machine room, adding the LMX allows up to ten elevator phones to be connected to the LMA panel.

The LMA panel can operate as a standalone unit or be incorporated into a lobby panel. One pair of wires from either the elevator phone or LMX and 110 AC power are required for installation. Onboard volume control adjusts the audible signal, with a reset function to silence it using a standard J200 key. The unit resets automatically when the phone line is restored.

Voice Announcements Add Another Layer of Safety to Janus Edges

Panachrome 3D elevator safety edges can now be programmed with audible warnings
Hauppauge, N.Y. (February 22, 2010) –Panachrome 3D elevator safety edges from Janus Elevator Products combine premium infrared protection with illuminated segments that visually inform passengers when it is safe to enter or leave the elevator.  A new Voice Annunciator option adds audio information for safety that targets two passenger senses.

The Panachrome Voice Annunciator option delivers audio elevator door warnings.

The Panachrome Voice Annunciator option delivers audio elevator door warnings.

Designed specifically for sites where additional safety is required by users, such as retirement homes, hospitals and public access buildings, the Panachrome Voice Annunciator option would provide audio cues for passengers who may not be able to see, or may fail to notice, visual cues of door movement.  Customer selected messages such as “Doors are opening, safe to enter,” and “Doors are closing, please use caution,” are factory pre-recorded for quick installation.  Volume can be controlled and adjusted on-site.

The appropriate voice message is triggered by a relay from the detector’s control box, which is signaled by the door open/close signals from the door operator motor.  The Voice Annunciator option is available on all new Panachrome 3D edges and as an upgrade on installed edges.

In addition to the Voice Annunciator option, all Panachrome 3D edges feature red/green illuminated visual indicators standard.  The illuminated segments glow green when it is safe to enter and exit the elevator and change to red to signal that the doors are about to close. 

The Panachrome 3D uses a combination of 3D detection in the landing zone and 2D detection between the doors, with a 154-beam light curtain offering maximum passenger protection. The edges are available in an Ultraslim 3/8 inch profile in addition to the standard 1 5/8 inch profile.  Custom operating mode configurations to suit particular installation needs.  The ‘timeout’ mode is ideal for hospitals as the doors will only start to close if the detection zone is clear, giving gurneys and wheelchairs time to enter the elevator safely.  At airports, it allows passengers with luggage carts and suitcases to avoid early door closings as they board the elevator.

The product complies with ADA requirements and the detectors can be used on both center-opening and side-opening doors.

Janus E-Motive Customized Displays Supplied to London Underground

LED screens enhance communication
Hauppauge, N.Y. (September 16, 2009) –E-Motive LED displays have been installed in renovated stations of London’s Underground.  Available from Janus Elevator Products in the United States, the LED screens were custom-designed for the project.

London Underground BLOG

E-Motive was approached by Dewhurst, the elevator component supplier, following a request for a new specification of display from their client, a major elevator manufacturer.  The displays needed to be very bright – to make them easily visible from a distance – and able to show elevator position, upper and lower case letters, as well as both standard and customized messages.

Due to the different elevator car sizes found in the nine Underground stations concerned, the displays also had to be supplied in two non-standard lengths, with a provisional design made for a third version, yet to be delivered.  By adapting its existing range of long displays and modifying the relevant software, E-Motive was able to quickly supply screens that met the project specifications.

“Our client was amazed by the speed of E-Motive’s response,” said Mike Leach, head of European elevator sales at Dewhurst. “Within a week of their enquiry, they’d been sent a photo, and a week later they received a product sample.”

The company’s E-Motive Display line is a recognized industry leader in elevator display and monitoring technology. Screens are interfaced with the elevator controller to automatically display elevator position and direction.  Janus offers a wide selection of displays and monitoring systems, ranging from simple dot-matrix directional displays to the high-end, full-color multimedia screens.  Select models can be programmed to provide live TV feeds, video clips, animations, still ads, stock market information and any combination of fixed or variable text messages.

Janus Hits One Out of the Park at New Yankee Stadium

Custom elevator fixtures contribute to high-end feel of new ballpark
Hauppauge, N.Y. (July 27, 2009)  –  When the New York Yankees’ new Stadium was built, visitor convenience was increased by upgrading from only three elevators at the old park to sixteen in the new Yankee Stadium.  To maximize elevator usability, Janus Elevator Products was selected to supply custom E-Motive LED displays.  The highly visible hall position indicators and lanterns communicate landing information, elevator arrival and custom scrolling messages.

The Stadium design called for 7-foot displays to be mounted above eight elevators in the Great Hall and on the 300 level landing.  The unusually large panels needed to be capable of showing floor landing information in words rather than numbers, bright enough to be seen from a distance, and meet a number of other aesthetic requirements to blend with the Stadium’s architecture. 

Janus worked closely with the project’s elevator contractor, KONE (www.kone.com), to develop a fixture unlike any conventional landing display.  Each unit included a 5-foot long custom E-Motive dot matrix LED screen flanked by large LED arrival lanterns.  In order to increase brightness and visibility, custom 8mm white LEDs were sourced and the screens fit with anti-glare plastic.  The enclosure was custom engineered with concealed fasteners and a hinging mechanism to facilitate installation and service. 

“Janus Elevator and KONE worked together for more than a year to engineer the custom 7-foot long hall position indicators for Yankee Stadium,” says KONE Project Manager Heather Millard. “I want to extend a sincere thank you to the Janus team for thinking outside of the traditional fixture box, their patience throughout the long design period and everyone’s extra effort to complete the project on time and within budget.”

The dot matrix display provides landing information for the Field, Main, H&R Block Suite and Terrace/Grandstand levels.  Additionally, the screens are programmed with scrolling elevator status and emergency messages, providing a unique way to communicate with park visitors as they wait for an elevator to arrive.

Yankee Stadium opened for its first season on April 16, 2009.  The Stadium has incorporated a number of features to make it the most fan-friendly park in Major League Baseball.  Handicap accessibility has been significantly increased with the additional elevators, wider concourses and added wheelchair and companion seating.
